Abstract

The TARPA (Training & Assessment of Relational Precursors & Abilities) is a recently developed computer-based protocol for the assessment of a progression of key domains of responding critical to the development of generative language. In the current pilot study, five children with autism were assessed using the TARPA and their score on this protocol was correlated with ratings on the Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales. Findings showed a statistically significant correlation. This and other features of TARPA performance and their implications for future testing and development of this protocol are discussed.
